Baseball sweeps Washington State in 29 hours

Alabama’s offense has been on full display since opening day against Valparaiso. The Crimson Tide outscored the Crusaders 34-13 in that series. Against Washington State, the Crimson Tide nearly matched its run total, putting up 29 runs, while allowing just nine. "Honestly, it's [the Alabama offense] surpassed my expectations to this point," coach Brad Bohannon said. "There was a lot of hard contact today. I felt good about the group going into the season, and ... having an older group of position players, you have guys who aren't trying to do too much."

Gymnastics ties season-high score in vault during senior night

Crimson and white confetti rained down on Alabama’s gymnasts as they embraced each other in an emotional group hug on the middle of the floor apparatus. Although the Crimson Tide had just notched a season best 49.575 on floor, shattering its previous season high of 49.4, the celebratory confetti swirled around them for a different reason. It was senior night, and a tribute video highlighting the careers of Alabama’s four soon-to-be graduates had just played on the big screen. Immediately before that, seniors Kiana Winston and Nickie Guerrero had ended the final regular season home meet of their careers with a bang. The last two gymnasts to compete on floor, Winston posted an impressive 9.925 while Guerrero scored a career-best 9.95.

Starter Sam Finnerty and Justin Dehn went pitch for pitch for the first six innings.

The Aggies would score one more run in the inning, coming off a third straight single.

Kaylee Tow continues to make strides in freshman season

Kaylee Tow introduced herself as “fearless” at a team meeting last August when she arrived at Alabama’s campus. The freshman outfielder has backed up her words and won the trust of her coach and teammates right away. “She’s very competitive, I know that,” said coach Patrick Murphy. “The first thing she said to everybody in the initial team meeting in August was that she’s fearless and it’s true. She won’t back down, which is cool.”
